We utilize state of the art digital radiology equipment. Digital radiology is an amazing technological advancement that allows our doctors to immediately view as well as share radiographs to a network of board-certified radiologists, sometimes thousands of miles away. This enables us to get the quickest diagnosis as possible and opinions from specialists from across the country.
Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform a multitude of diagnostic procedures on site, ensuring rapid results and diagnosis. For the more complex diagnostic tests, we courier our samples to our external partner, Idexx Laboratories, who are able to perform hundreds of diagnostic tests and provide us with fast and accurate results and interpretations.
Dental disease is prevalent in both dogs and cats. Some breeds are naturally predisposed to dental disease while others acquire the condition as they age. Tooth trauma is a common occurrence in dogs especially those who like to chew. Dental disease not only causes bad breath and discomfort, but if left undetected can lead to serious periodontal disease, abscesses, weight loss and severe pain. In more advanced stages the bacteria in the pet's mouth enters the blood stream and causes damage to the kidneys and heart. We promote at home dental care and dental disease prevention. We are always willing to discuss with our clients how they can help to prevent any dental issues from occurring with their pets.
We are equipped to perform a variety of surgical procedures. Our skilled surgeons routinely perform surgical sterilization (spaying and neutering), soft tissue surgeries (wound repairs, lump and mass removals), orthopedics, eye and ear surgeries. We use only the safest anesthetics and pharmaceuticals, and all our surgical patients are strictly monitored before, during and post-surgery by our highly trained nurses. Our top priority is the safety and comfort of our patients; therefore, we encourage pre-surgical blood work and post-surgical pain management.
We promote regular physical examinations as well as vaccinations for your pet. The frequency of visits changes depending on your pet's stage of life and risk factors. We encourage vaccinating for all canine and feline diseases that are endemic in our region. We promote parasite treatment and prevention for internal and external parasites. Many parasites not only affect your pet, but many are zoonotic (transmissible to humans) as well.
If you are travelling with your pet, please ask us about any special vaccinations or preventative treatments that they may require. We also provide prompt consultation and examination should your pet become ill or injured.
We have a well-stocked in-house pharmacy that carries a wide variety of veterinary pharmaceuticals. We also work closely with pharmacies that are able to compound a variety of drugs into several different forms making administration to your pet much easier. Veterinarians must follow the same laws as human pharmacists which states that all pets must be examined by a doctor and have a veterinarian-client-patient relationship in order to keep all our pets safe and healthy.
